Jimi would be proud!
This show has some great interpretations of Jimi Hendrix songs, and have the musicianship to attempt this songbook. At times this is plain smoking, and I dare you to listen to the highlights of this show and disagree.
The guitar playing is nasty, and I feel like these two axe-men push each other to new heights. The rhythm section has that Band of Changes thump to it, that launches everyone who takes a stab at running atop the groove.
There are a few that fall short, and get a little too groovy for my tastes.
All in all, Will Bernard gives his own experience to the crowd and these guys soar to touch a couple of of these vaulted songs in all the right spots.
Hightlights for me: Them Changes, Little Wing, Manic Depression (check out Metzger on this one).
